Angelica Flores, the 16-year-old reported missing after walking away from a Shelter Care facility in Fairfax City in February, has been found safe. She turned herself in to the Norfolk Police Department Thursday evening. Detectives say no one was with her when she arrived at the police station.
Fairfax County police believe that Flores has been associated with gang members and they had thought that the teenager may have been in danger.
Flores is expected to be returning to Fairfax County early next week. Detectives intend to interview her about what happened since February 17, when she was reported missing. According to Fairfax County police, Flores will be held in the county’s Juvenile Detention Center after she returns.
